High Percentage Techniques per Season

Recommended Posts

What are some of your most consistently High-Percentage techniques, per season? 

Would be interesting to see everyone's comparison.

 

(hopefully this isn't too vague, feel free to elaborate as you see fit.)

Pre-spawn: Almost never get to fish it so I haven't settled on anything, really

Spawn: Don't fish it much, but bladed jigs were successful this year

Post-spawn: Senko, wacky or t-rigged

Summer: Using any version of a "Jigworm" (hook with weighted head + worm; including but not limited to what everyone now calls a "shakyhead") to probe a deep weedline or drop off.

Fall: don't fish it much, but buzzbaits were my favorite last year.

Winter: don't get to fish.

Pre-spawn: Spinnerbaits

Spawn: Chatterbaits

Post-spawn: Just about anything, but senkos are probably my top producer here.

The jig has a high percentage year round. Followed by a t-rig trick worm. 

In late summer and fall I gotten fond of the Alabama rig

This year has gone like this for me so far on the lake I fish.

Pre-Spawn: Chatterbait or Lipless Crankbait

Spawn:  Beaver style bait Pitched to their beds

Post-Spawn: Spinnerbait/Squarebill Crankbait/Buzzbait (almost every fish during this time I caught this year had a bluegill tail sticking out of their throat)

Summer: 1/2 oz or 3/8 oz Jig with a Rage Craw trailer pitched into shallow brush piles.

Early spring/cold water: suspending jerkbait

Pre spawn: jigs, square bills

Spawn:  jigs, drop shot

Post spawn: jigs, big t rigged worms

summer/hot water: spooks early, drop shot during day and my most productive fishing is at night with a black/blue spinner bait with big Colorado blade

Winter, spring, summer, or fall...I use em all!

Of course their effectiveness depends on water & weather conditions.

I don't shelf a technique just because the seasons change.

This year so far:

Early spring: lipless crankbaits

pre-spawn: wacky rigged senkos, Texas rigged craws and creatures. 

Spawn: wacky rigged senkos and topwater

post spawn: topwater 

current/recently: topwater, Ned rig and wacky rigged senkos.

Now that summer is in full swing, I'll be tossing Texas-rigged 7-10" Culprit ribbon tail worms a lot.
